Few of my DIY’s………for gifts, home etc…

I love making gifts or things for my house myself! I love looking at other people’s creative DIY Jobs and trying to be as crafty as possible when it comes to DIY furnishings or gifts….here are few of my random DIY jobs or re-using of objects at home…..

My Plain vase made pretty….

So i had this flower vase…very standard and boring….wanted to jazz it up somehow so found an old hairband with giant flower on it that i never wear or will wear so wrap it around the vase to give it a fresh look…..the flowers seem happy in their too…

Xmas gifts,,,,

So i found these babies in Michaels Craft Store…they came in a packet….i made them into Xmas tree decorations for my family when i went home at Christmas 2012, i gave my mom and sis specific one’s with little notes attached and they adored them and hung them on the tree…I just wrapped old string i had through them..

DIY food jar tags…

So me and mikey(boyfriend) have had an on-going battle with how exactly pasta and rice is cooked…its famous in our relationship now 😛 , so i decided to make a truce and create jar tags with exactly how to cook each, with each method being a blend of our two minds….it works quite well…

Mikey’s niece was christened this Christmas past at home in Ireland and we were fortunate enough to be home for it as mikey was baby Saibh’s(pronounced Sive) godfather. So we bought a small gift and instead of giving a card i drew out her name and bought a frame and some pink lace and DIY’d a frame name/card for her. Cards tend to get thrown out so at least this will be kept from her uncle Mikey and aunty Emma.
